Annual Fundraising Events
This year staff & volunteers took part in on not one, but three challenges to raise money to support the animals in our care.
They braved the Velocity Zip Wire, which is the highest zip wire in Europe;
Climbed Snowdon, the second largest mountain in the UK; and
washed down rapids in White Water Rafts!!
We are looking for people to donate funds for the animals in our care and you can do so via Just Giving
Summer & Christmas Fairs
Annually, we have both a Summer Fair at the Animal Centre and a Christmas Fair at Greenbank High School, Hillside.

Woodland Sensory Garden
If you would like to help, on a voluntary basis, please get in touch. All of the money raised helps support the animals in our care, or specific fund raising projects, for example, our Woodland Sensory Garden in 2018, which was designed & built with our dogs' rehabilitation in mind: Giving them the opportunity to experience, in a quietier environment, different smells / scents, textures to walk upon and obstacles to manoeuvre, whilst also find those treats that we've 'hidden' in advance.
All of this has been provided through fund raising, built by our handy-person volunteer and courtesy of donations gratefully received from the Trades Union, 'Unison', together with other sponsorship from our supporters & volunteers.
If you would like to purchase and display a hand-made animal, perhaps in memory of a sadly missed pet, please drop by the Animal Centre and we will see what we can do. As you can see, it has been very popular!
